Art Full Text - online introduction

One of the databases searched within Library Search 'Articles & more' is Art Full Text.  You don't have to access the 'native' interface, but there are a few features that you might find useful, so I have embedded an online presentation on Art Full Text below. 

It is not the most exciting presentation in the world, but it does provide a useful summary of some of the features:

Coverage; Subject headings; Images of art works; Search fields; Biographical data; Advanced search menu; Email and RSS alerts; Saving articles; Saving searches; Translation of articles; Conversion to audio / saving audio files; Automated referencing

To access the native interface, go to Library Search and search for 'art full text' within the 'Books, journals & more' tab.  You can also try this with 'art bibliographies modern.'

NB: if you are asked for a username and password, ignore and look for 'Shibboleth access via UK federation'

If you have any questions about Art Full Text, please contact me.
